    Lottie Lyell as Doreen in The Sentimental Bloke (AWW, 9 Dec. 1970, p.13)

    Actor, screenwriter, film producer, and film editor

    Australia's first female film star, Lottie Lyell is largely associated with the films of Raymond Longford. Throughout the 1910s and early 1920s, the pair collaborated on at least eighteen films, including The Sentimental Bloke (1919) and On Our Selection (1920). Both films are considered to be among the most significant in Australian cinema history.
